Née de la rencontre fortuite d’une stout forte et d’une fermentation d’abricots du Valais qui jamais n’atteignit l’alambic du distillateur auquel elle était destinée, notre Oud Bruin (flamand pour "vieille brune") est une interprétation assez peu orthodoxe de ses cousines belges.
Elle en garde cependant le délicat équilibre aigre-doux, entre une solide ossature maltée assise sur des malts, aux notes caramélisées, chocolatées, rôties et fruitées, dans laquelle vient se fondre le vin d’abricot avec son acidité lactique, ses notes de cuir et d’étable liées aux levures sauvages, et une discrète note d’abricot.
La finale est légèrement amère et le tout se déroule tout en harmonie sur le palais.
Une bière unique, d’une grande buvabilité mais joliment complexe, entre douceur, fruité et acidité. Elle se mariera avec l’agneau, le canard, les moules, les crustacés ou des fromages à pâte molle ou mi-dure.
Série limitée de 1.200 bouteilles de 75cl, 7.2% d’alcool/volume, 35 unités internationales d’amertume (IBU).
Avec un grand merci au Journal de Ste-Croix pour l’aimable mise à disposition d’un local suffisamment tempéré pour la refermentation en bouteille cet hiver!

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2010
In short: A fruity, caramelized, vinous, tannic, complex sour ale. Different and highly drinkable
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed relatively fresh a few months after receiving it through private importation
The look: Cloudy mahogany body topped by a very small beige head
In long: Nose is leafy with notes of sour fruits. This aroma of this one is not oaky/cherries like most good Flemish sours. Taste has a nice fresh fruity character with plenty of red grapes, berries and such. A bit vinous. Some balsamic vinegar. The yeast character is bit on the wild side, not quite funky, but unusually barnyard/wild for a Flemish Sour. Mild leafy hops bitterness. Saliva sucking mouth drying tannins. The beer is a bit sweet with more caramel that I’m used to for the style but somehow it works admirably with the rest of the beer. Some cherry skin but no oak at all which is unusual for the style. Sourness level is a bit below average but that’s quite ok as I approached it as a session Flemish Sour, and a damn good one at that. Very nice brew, too bad it is so expensive and rare. But an old saying says “Live like you would like and you will part this world a happier person”. I just don’t see how spending a good part of my life in jail can make me so happy.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle: Poured a dark redddish color ale with a medium foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of vinous sour notes is well done. Taste is a nice mix between some tart notes with some oak and light cherry backed by a nice solid malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no sign of the alcohol. Very well done and definitely underrated compared to some other beer form this style.
